It's the 50th Anniversary of one of the toughest bike races in America; the Bob Cook Memorial Mt. Evans Hill Climb.
Nearly 28 miles of climbing up the highest paved road in the United States.
The Localcycling staff recently ran into Stuart Baillie who tied or won the first three editions (and again in 1966) at an event in Kansas City. Look for some comments from this early winner if we track him down again.
